Vegetarian Lunch Box was a treat!

What a fun presentation for a Thai lunch! The food was great and there were vegetarian options to choose from. Service was excellent. Getting extra plates to share each other food was handled without the "attitude" I've found at some restaurants. We'll be back for dinner soon.

Love this place one of my top favorite places to eat at. I always get the same thing, the Orange Chicken. I have brought a lot of family too eat here and it always impresses. The prices are low for amazing food, the servers are very nice and do a fantastic job.

Wild Papaya is good. I am not enamored of Thai food (too coconuty) but for Thai it is good. It is not the least expensive Asian food in the area, but is a nice place to eat if you want Thai that is not too spiced.

My family and I make it a point to go to Wild Papaya whenever possible! The service is phenomenal, the atmosphere is great, and the food is authentic and delicious. I've sampled almost everything on the menu and I've never been disappointed. The ingredients are clearly high-quality. The cooks don't do anything halfway-- every for a weekday lunch, the presentation... More

Great Thai food, excellent staff. The weird thing was that we were the only ones eating there and they didn't turn the music on until 10 minutes after we sat down. We were there at 6pm on a week night, maybe that had something to do with it.

Food service for meals consumed inside is rapid and correct. Staff for waiting on tables is asian and veteran and attentive to your needs. We had had good service on previous visits with the same veteran staff - mostly female. Favorable conditions were the same for this last visit in early December. These characteristics do make a big difference favorable... More

We strolled down 59 looking for something new and found this place. We thoroughly enjoyed the summer rolls and pot stickers. The pad thai arrived and exceeded expectations. We really enjoy the Thai in Hudson. This definitely competes. Now we have a tough decision when we want Thai!

It is still the best for preparing and serving the dish called larb kai as a salad. I have asked for it to be a main entree but they had not ever heard that request before. One disadvantage for me is the following: If you are sitting in the corner near the front window you will be placed under the... More

This is a nice little restaurant in Kent, Ohio that serves really good Thai food at reasonable prices. Portions are good sized, just right for sharing so that you can try a variety. If you like it spicier, ask. They will make to your specifications. The place is small, with a pleasant atmosphere. The service is good without being pushy.... More

Wild Papaya has good service, affordable prices and a good atmosphere. The noodle portions are very fulfilling, the lunchbox combos served between 2 and 4 pm have a nice variety of food selections (salad, spring rolls or dumplings, and a curry of your preference), the appetizers are good and their tea, be it either iced, hot or bubble tea, is...
